Handpainted Christmas Ball Ornament, Stekkjarstaur - Giljagaur
The figures are handpainted from the inside -naive renditions of the Yule Lads! Gold painted decoration outside of ball at top and bottom, packaged in cushioned red box. This ball features:
Stekkjarstaur or Sheep Worrier, is the first Yule Lad to embark on the difficult (due to his stiff legs) trek from the mountains on the 12th of December. He’ll hobble into the first sheep shed he can find on his way as this thirsty lad adores ewe’s milk, much to the dismay of the poor sheep.
Giljagaur or Gully Gawk, is the second Yule Lad to head down the mountains on the 13th of December. A picky pilferer, Giljagaur is only interested in the creamy froth found in milk pails left unattended.
